Kaj (Steen Svare) is a pleasant, shy, somewhat overweight Danish bachelor who runs an outdoor hot-dog stand. A quartet of his friends think it would be great fun to take him on a boat excursion to the cheap thrills of Swinoujscie, Poland, where the booze and the women are cheap (but you stand the chance of having your wallet stolen). Its his fortieth birthday, and as far as any of them know, he's still a virgin, or nearly so. While the lads a whooping it up in a bar (and incidentally getting into all sorts of trouble), Kaj goes to the house of a nice family in the mistaken belief that he's headed for a whorehouse. Instead, he's treated to a nice meal and it's assumed that he's there to marry the family's similarly chubby daughter (Dorota Pomkykala). Indeed, as he stays at the family home overnight, they do become friends. The next day, Kaj bails his friends out of jail and they head back to Denmark, Kaj with a twinkle in his eye. Maybe he'll come back and marry that girl after all.
